Review: Mindhunter Season 1 Episode 9 “Episode 9”

David Fincher’s dark, delicate grip is instantly prevalent from the excellently disturbing opening sequences. The grim, gritty reality that Fincher paints is well reflected by Ford’s continued downfall and disregard for women as mere objects and mechanisms of research and insight into the mind of their controllers. Jonathan Groff conveys this growing sinister nature perfectly, with his character’s arrogant, ignorant and careless persoan, while the supporting actors further intensify the conflict. If ‘Mindhunter’ wishes to be this character study, focussing around Ford, noting his inherent, unconscious motivations, the image he wishes to project and his own lack of concern, it is undeniably succeeding. This episode fascinates in that regard, and while things may be moving a little predictably, it is compelling viewing. 9.1/10
